Ubisoft has always been very curious about Rainbow Six Siege player base. Many times, we have heard Ubisoft serving justice to hackers, abusers, and cheaters. Their top of the line game Rainbow Six Siege costs a lot. The base game is cheap, but that’s not it. You need to have additional packs, that can go up to $60, which is not very cheap.
A spokesperson told PC Gamer that Ubisoft wants Siege to be accessible for everyone. He further said that its free to play isn’t exactly fun. You need a lot of other content, in order to make the game good and successful.
“It’s a company decision. I think on the development team we want that at some point. We want the game to be accessible to everyone. You need certain features ready to be a good and successful free-to-play game,” he said. One of those features, Athanassoff explained, is a good solution to smurfing. Smurfing is the practice of buying a new account to reset your skill rating and play against less-skilled players.
Well, Smurfing is a global issue for all games. When a player is surfing, it literally destroys the match for all players. It becomes one-sided because an experienced player is using new account to match up against beginners. Fortnite does not tolerate smurfing, Dota 2 users get an immediate ban, Overwatch does not allow multiple accounts. Despite these rules, players are still easily able to make a new accounts and play against beginners. Recently, Valve banned 40,000 players, which is enormous.
Rainbow Six Siege has no harsh policies against smurfing. The spokesperson said that Ubisoft next goal would be to introduce new sets of rules that will reduce smurfing significantly.
“What’s important for us is that we find out as soon as possible that a player is highly skilled in the things that matter,” he said. “The problem right now is that you can play a certain amount of matches with Copper players while you’re a Diamond.”
Well, after Ubisoft sorts the smurfing issue, I’ll be happy to hear update on Rainbow Six Siege being free. The game is way too expensive comparing other FPS games. Additional items make it quite absurd, to be honest, hence, it would be nice of Ubisoft to either reduce the price or make it free. Rainbow Six Siege community has constantly criticized Ubisoft for not banning players who are smurfing, which has raised a lot of questions over the years.
